and the talk leading up to it being available is really what happened or didn't happen between john boehner and the president. tell us more. >> there is a lot of details in here. i have it right here especially around the negotiations. the end of july of 2011 when the white house, president obama and his staffers were working with congressional leadership to try to get this debt ceiling raised. i want to show you a quote from treasury secretary timothy geithner on the night of july 29th when a proposal was passed in the house, the republican controlled house. it was john boehner's proposal to raise the debt ceiling but do so in two steps. the quote from timothy geithner is you can't veto and cannot be responsible for default. this is what he told president obama. woodward went on to write that anything had to be done to prevent what would have been a catastrophic default. he also writes that david pluf said if he caves, if the president caves to republicans on this issue it would have long lasting political repercussions and give republicans the upper hand going forward and they would be ab
had with the republicans. look at the contempt that john boehner had towards president obama. >> the only thing about the differences between the president and myself is i'm here smoking, drinking, here's the president of the united states drinking iced tea and champing on nicorettes. >> he's making fun of the president for drinking iced tea. what a weird weird set of circumstances and those are the guys you're supposed to be negotiating with? i can't wait to go off on that story. we have an exclusive with don the former governor of alabama about to go to jail, railroaded by karl rove. karl rove blamed them for it. >> i'm his daughter. i just wanted to meet you and say -- he cut me off right away and said tell your dad not to use my name to make money. >> crazy. all right. it's a big show, and it's go time. >> all right. it is the anniversary of 9/11 and i got a warning for you guys, i'm about to get angry about this story. it's about the negligence of the bush administration and what they did not do to prevent that attack. of course, president obama, of course as usual spoke
. host: the role of john boehner last year. guest: he went to the president and he proposed tax reform, and the president said he was willing to go along with the entitlement reform. half the book is this 44 days, and economic cuban missile crisis where they are trying to do something. the end result is to push everything off, all the tough decisions to 2013. host: they come up with the sequestration plan. now we're at a point where automatic spending cuts go through january, 2013. we went back into the c-span archives to illustrate your coverage. president obama comes before the cameras and so does john boehner. the reaction to that. [video clip] >> i did not see a path to a deal if they do not budge. if the basic proposition is, it is "my way or the highway, we will probably not get it done." if in fact mitch mcconnell and john boehner are sincere that they do not want to see u.s. government default, they have to compromise, just like democrats have to compromise. >> the president continues to insist on raising taxes. they are not serious about entitlement reform. i want to get there
. and john boehner says the house passed a measure in may to replace the president's situation with common sense reforms and reducing the deficit by $233 billion. but the white house wants to remind republicans in congress that both partied voted for sequestration as a penalty for the failure of the bipartisan debt reducing super committee. >> it is been to remember that democrats an republicans voted in majorities in both houses of congress in support of this. >> if no alternative agreement is reached, the sequester kicks in january 2. and half of the $110 billion in cuts in 2013 would be to domestic programs. the other half would be to the defense budget. in washington, peter ducci, fox news. >>> another big story we are following tonight. fbi agents thwart an alleged terror attack in chicago. a man tried to detonate what he believed was a car bomb outside a downtown chicago bar. it was an undercover operation where agents pretended to be terrorists and provided him with a phony car bomb. fbi agents say they have been monitoring him since may after he posted material online about violent
back from the dead immediate control of the congress. john boehner is the speaker of the house. john boehner realizes that he has to confront his own people if he is going to save the credit rating them back on moody's and save it from downgrade. this is going to be a political disaster. john boehner can fill in the back of his scalp that this is going to be burning on the republicans. he feels political blame but it's also worried about the country. two hearts -- two heartbeats away from the downgrade. and so, he does something extraordinary. he acts like a leader. he comes up with a compromise. that is a political possibility from where he sits and he finds out a way to close loopholes and raise some $800 billion in new revenue. that should be enough to make a deal with the president of the united states. and he manages to come to a deal. even shake hands. and they can feel history, the wind of history at their back. and then we will reform entitlement. the vice president is deeply involved. at the very moment that they are making this deal and they shake hands, obama suddenly gets
speaker of the house, john boehner. now, while the democrats have failed, john boehner working with paul ryan passed a responsible budget in the house of representatives. he did. he passed 30 pro growth jobs bills that the democrats have blocked. folks, help is on the way. please welcome our friend, ohio's own speaker of the house, john boehner. >> welcome. let me just say ohio has a great united states senator in rob portman. he's been my friend for about 25 years and i remember about 22 years ago telling rob he ought to leaf the white house and go home and get himself ready to run for congress. let me tell you what, he's done a great job on behalf of cincinnati and a great job on behalf of ohio and the country in all of his roles in public service. rob, keep up the great job. republicans were lucky enough to win the majority 18 months ago. we promised the american people that it would not be about us, it would be about the american people. we promised to listen to the american people and follow their will. that's for 18 straight months, we have focused on the economy and jobs every sin
will say "it happened on the obama presidency." not the john boehner period. >> rose: the president will make the following points "yes, bob, i could not control the republican party and the caucus and the tea party members of that party. but on the other hand i did get from my friends and my supporters in the house of representatives who were to the left of where i was a commitment to give me room to negotiate. i got that the from them." >> he did not, though. >> rose: well, nancy pelosi said he did. >> no, no, no. listen... >> rose: it gave him room to negotiate. >> they gave him some flexibility but when obama said "we're going to cut medicare" nancy pelosi said to him "oh, my god, if we do that that will make the republicans well on the ryan budget." and we can't do that. there was a great deal of resistance and harry reid was going his own way on this. so obama did not corral the democrats and boehner certainly did not corral the republicans. >> rose: so it was a failure of leadership on john boehner's part as well. >> indeed! indeed. >> rose: because they didn't owe their elec
think one of the problems here for john boehner, folks, that is the jobs discussion and the tax discussion and what we do with the tax money, as we were talking about previously are all interrelated. john boehner and the house republicans have a lot of excitement and energy around being courageous politicians, changing the tone in washington, being straight shooters. john boehner couldn't truthfully answer the question. he didn't try to. he seems to think that talking point is enough. >> it went out of style when paul ryan became a running mate. he may not have read the latest memo, it's now a choice election. it's about much more than that. it's talk abouting jobs, to talk about so much more than the unemployment rate. >> right. what is the government going to do about jobs? that would involve something, some government action either way, right? >> it would. if we're talking out -- you can't talk about outside political context. when boehner talks about jobs -- i cut him slack here. if he made any comment about that one way or the other he was making his life more difficult, an
enough to cut a deal which is why president clinton couldn't cut a deal with john boehner. you and i have been around a long time. if, in fact, washington does nothing in the lame duck session, doesn't even extend the existing policy for six or seven months which theoretically everyone wants to do, then washington for the first time will with the foreknowledge impose about this country a recession. no external factors. internal home-baked political ones will send this country into recession. >> because of leadership. >> right. >> now apparently in the book, first of all obama was furious that he couldn't make a deal with boehner. boehner says obama raised taxes another $400 billion at the last minute and walked away. what's interesting to me is boehner said, and i have heard it from others and you probably have, too. boehner said nobody is really in charge in the white house. that was the problem. the whole staffing structure, nobody could make a decision. >> larry, this is all about trust. president obama's staff doesn't trust them. professional republicans never hear from the president
think the evidence is right there. i'm not going as far to say why john boehner didn't call him back, you have to read into his heart and mind. it's very clear from the actions the president took he was continuing to pursue a deal. as for the debt, i want to answer the second part which is as for the debt. >> he blew the deal. >> we can't all talk at once. i didn't interrupt you. we can't all talk at once. if you keep talking, this happens and it's not fun for any. >> i just want to read a quote -- >> can i finish my answer. >> hang on. >> i want to finish the debt part. >> i understand. you can't go any further on debt. i want to ask you, if you believe president obama had another deal, okay, he sees he blew it with boehner on the extra $400 billion on tax, how do you reconcile this? david crohn, harry reid's chief of staff, in the oval office with obama says, "to the president, it's really dishearteninat this white house, did not have a plan b. that's all i'm trying to say, they didn't have a plan b. to give them credit for plan b knocks out this david crohn quote. he just said tha
speaker john boehner failed to reach agreement on the budget, an agreement that they called "the grand bargain" you're calling for cooperation in washington, but if you're re- elected, john boehner will still be speaker of the house. paul ryan will still be the chairman of the budget committee. how will anything change in washington if all the players are the same, including yourself? >> well, first of all, we don't know what's going to happen in the election. in my election or anybody else's. so we don't want to take that for granted. but let's assume i'm re-elected and the house republicans are still in charge. i think it's important to point out that even with all the back- and-forth that's taken place this year, we got a lot of stuff done. we have cut a trillion dollars from our deficit because of an agreement that i made with speaker boehner that got passed and got signed. my sense is that the message that will be sent by voters this time out, if i'm re-elected, will be we're not satisfied with the pace of progress, but we do think that the ideas the president has presented are th
, just 30 days until a possible global financial meltdown. the president calls house speaker john boehner to the white house to try to negotiate a deal that will outflank tea party opposition. >> at one point of the meeting -- >> reporter: for the first time you're hearing tapes of john boehner and then the president, two separate interviews, talking to woodward about this crossroads of history. >> all you need to know about the differences between the president and myself is that i'm sitting here smoking a cigarette, drinking merlot, and i look across the table, and here's the president of the united states drinking iced tea and chomping on nicorette. ah. >> did you offer him a cigarette? >> oh, i did not. i did not. he -- nor did he ask for one. >> by that time i had quit smoking, but, you know, i was making sure he had an ashtray, you know, you know, he'd had a sip of wine, so i'm feeling fairly optimistic. >> reporter: as days go by, a blizzard of paper between the two, numbers, counternumbers, and then it looks close, a combination of tax cuts and government programs and tax increase
the notice. >> jennifer: we all know what he means by that but house spoker john boehner spun those words. >> well, you actually can change washington from the inside, it takes courage, determination, and sincerity, and it's called leadership. >> jennifer: there's that leadership thing they keep talking about. so the president responded to john boehner quickly. take a listen. >> obama: what kind of inside job is he talking about? the job of rubber stamping the top down, you are on your own agenda of this republican congress? because if it is we don't want it. >> joy: later boehner actually proved the president right. he admitted that the going to stop at nothing to make it impossible for president obama to pass anything to help the country. when asked if a reelection victory for the president would going to have to raise taxes in some way to compromise boehner said -- >> raising taxes according to ernst & young would threaten our economy with the loss of 700,000 jobs. why would i ever be for something like that? i'm not. >> jennifer: why would we ever be for somethi

will be downgraded again unless congress gets its act together quickly. how speaker john boehner threw cold water on that prospect this afternoon by saying that a deal is a long way off. for some analysis now, jeffrey miron. welcome back to the show. all right, what you make of this? >> it's great to be here. gerri: do you think that movies will downgrade us again? >> i suspect that they well. i think it is going to be very hard for the two sides to come to any meaningful order substantive agreement. we are going to get another stalemate. gerri: here is what movies said. the rating outlook assumes a relatively orderly process for the increase in statutory debt limit. these people don't know the relatively orderly processes. there is a lot of that throwing, i can't even imagine it's going to be orderly. >> of course not. but there is this fundamental disagreement about what the right way forward is. i mean, it's useful to debate that because of these that the conversation about what people care about. but since there is no will to cut the spending, there is really no hope and they are doing someth
with congress. behind the scenes, you describe him meeting with the speaker of the house, john boehner, the cigarette summit. >> boehner said, here obama is having iced tea and chewing nicorettes and boehner's having a merlot and a cigarette. >> sean: they are trying to get this deal together. >> to their credit. >> sean: i will agree with that. to their credit, except, i wouldn't have liked that as a conservative. barron was agreeing to do something that the tea party would have had a fit about, which is raising, what? $800 billion in taxes and obama wants $400 billion more at last minute. >> yes, boehner's argument that $800 billion over 10 years in new revenue through tax reform, which is what ronald reagan did in 1986 and actually lowered the income tax rate down to 28%. it's hard. but it's been done. and it was one way to -- to get out of this. but you are absolutely right. it's the president who comes in and says, oh, we need $400 billion more in some form or his position is, he offered it, hey, john-- >>> at the last minute. >> kind of last minute. when you get into the nitty-gr
of politics. it tried to get inside the rooms where john boehner and barack obama were trying to solve the problem. we still don't quite know who said what. >> yeah. i actually saw bill daley on your show and i thought he gave the clearest and most succinct explanation of what happened which is a perfect accord with my understanding. and i think what woodward has and my colleague had of "the new york times" which ishat th wereorking o this deal. but they didn't communicate well, just the act of legislating effectively, negotiating effectively means complete communication, try to minimize the number of misunderstandings. they were doing that poorly. and then out of the blue comes the gang of six, the other gang of senators, they upset the apple cart and because of the fragility of their communication. >> rose: and was the democrats controlled the senate and the republicans controlled the house. >> everyone would have said here are my lines, here are your lines but they were so vague with each other and so distrustful of each other, everything was fraught even before the gang of six came
woodward book. it details the failed debt talks between the president and speaker john boehner. it details that there was tension between you and mr. boehner that, you did not agree with the direction he was going with the president, which was a deal that included tax increases. does the book paint an accurate picture? >> you know, john boehner and i saw eye to eye on the fact that we don't think increasing taxes, especially in an economy like this, helps job creation. somehow it helps our economy and the confidence level. we never differed on that point at all. it was the president who continued to insist that the only way to go forward was to raise taxes. again, i think that, you know, the budgeteers will tell you, you can't tax your way out of the problem, as i said earlier. the real focus should be on curing the spending problem in washington. that means we've got to deal with the entitlement situation. we have to deal with health care entitlements in order to manage down the debt. that is the first and foremost we've got to do, otherwise you're throwing money into a hole asking people
